How we did it:

Materials List

  1. scraps of fabric - any colors
  2. wire hanger
  1. Gather scraps of fabric, or purchase the colors you want in the sale area of your local fabric store. It took about 1 1/2 yards of fabric all together to make our wreath. San Antonio Spurs basketball has everyone at our house pretty excited, so we chose to make a black and silver Spurs wreath. You can make one with any colors to compliment your party theme or to celebrate a holiday.

  2. Bend the hanger into a circle shape.

  3. Wrap a strip of fabric down around the hook of the hanger. Tape it at the bottom onto the wire. It will later be covered and secured by the strips of fabric that are tied on.

  4. Start at the top and tie each strip of fabric onto the wire. We did a pattern (3 black, 2 silver, 3 black, 2 silver). Pull each strip of fabric tightly and push them together so there isn't space between the fabric strips.

  5. Continue until your wreath is full. For us this was not an activity that we could sit down and finish in one sitting. We left it and came back to it several times. It was great tying practice for him and now we have a custom wreath to help us cheer on our team.
